Roasted Nectarine Smoothie

Hellova dear friends ! A big hi to all those who missed me & have been wondering where the heck I am :D I had been on a short break coz of my relocation to India. So now that's done & am slowly settling to the clock & climate of Chennai, I thought I would take a peep into my humble space & post something from my drafts. It's been quite a while since I met & heard from you guys & yes, I AM missing you people. Getting back to a full time work after the year long break is fun & challenging, but it would not be a complete truth if I told that I do not miss the all time blogger life ;)

So want to know what my comeback recipe is. It is a simple smoothie with a twist, which by guarantee would be loved by a fruit phobic or a picky fruit eater too ! Want a name? None other than Deeps ! Yes, he is a very picky fruit eater & u can say at times me too ;) We are not great fans of fruits that are bitter or sour. So I find ways to mask that sense of taste very often.. And this one (which I found while gawking on foodgawker) was an instant hit with Deeps. He was like 'This is good' which actually translates to 'Wow, this is great !!' The roasting of the fruit before turning it into a smoothie actually did wonders. So, if you are on the watch out to use a nectarine or a peach (as the original recipe called for) in ways other than the raw form, then this is the recipe. Try it out & do let me know how you felt about it ! 

Recipe Source: Scarletta Bakes

I Took: 50-60 minutes

Serves: 4 tall glasses

I Used:

Nectarines - 4 large, pitted & quarted
Canola Oil - ¼ cup
Sugar - ¼ cup
Greek Yogurt  - 2 cup
Vanilla Ice cream - 6 cup (I used 3 cups)

The Way:

  1. Preheat oven to 175 degree C 
  2. Toss the nectarine quarters with oil & sugar until well coated
  3. Arrange the quarters on a parchment lined baking tray with the cut sides facing up. Roast them until the fruit is shriveled & darkened which would take about 30-40 minutes
  4. Allow them to cool once roasted. Add Greek yogurt & Vanilla ice cream & blend it to a smooth uniform consistency. Blend in batches of half if your blender cannot accommodate the whole quantity
  5. Serve in chilled tall glasses :)
